Publisher's Summary

A new meaning for office politics

Audrey Mathews has worked hard to get here. Now she's up for a promotion and nothing will stand in her way-including Zach Black. He's hot, smart and the competition. When they're assigned to the same project, she's shocked at how much she actually likes about him...and how much she misjudged him.

Before long Audrey is seriously falling for Zach-and indulging in an affair that's against company policy. And the stakes rise when it's clear only one of them can get ahead. So where do they draw the line between competition and love? Especially when she doesn't want to lose either the promotion or the guy....

Dialogue and action are summarized

instead of showing details.

I’ve enjoyed other books by this author, but this was not good. It’s all internal pondering and telling - not showing. Examples: 1. She says “there had been rumors that...” We don’t hear the conversations of who said what in the rumors. 2. The author skipped a conversation and wrote “Jack said all the right things.” 3. The couple is together doing something or going somewhere, but instead of talking, Jack is thinking in his head thoughts like: He knew if this happened in the future, she would do this. If that happened she would do that.

I was so bored. I read more than half and then did the last two chapters. The ending is happy for the couple. I didn’t care. I just wanted to be done.

There might be sex in this book, but there was none in the parts I read. This is a Harlequin Super Romance book.

AUDIOBOOK NARRATOR India Plum.
I did not like the narrator. She read as if she were not interested in what she was reading, like she was bored, as if she never smiled. I did not like her interpretations making some lines bratty, abrupt, or dismissive. I would not have read them like that. She used different voices and emphasized different words, but the overall feel was monotone. She has a heavy Australian accent.

OTHER BOOKS:
I enjoyed the following books by this author: Hot Island Nights and The Other Side of Us.

Narrative mode: 3rd person.
Genre: contemporary romance.
